Vir Das’ Netflix special to release on April 25
In September 2016, Actor-Comedian Vir Das made history by becoming the first ever Indian to be signed by Netflix for a Comedy Special following the likes of Kevin Hart, Louis CK, Aziz Ansari, Chris Rock, Bo Burnham, Bill Burr and Russel Peters. After much anticipation the release date for his show has been unveiled as on April 25 and the show is titled – “Abroad Understanding”.
This Comedy Special was filmed in New York and New Delhi last year in November and will be streamed on Netflix across the globe in over 100 countries. Das’ international digital debut offers a hilarious insight into India’s largest English stand-up comic. Fans across the world can expect a taste of Indian comedy, astute social commentary and, a personal glimpse into Das’ journey across the world. It’s a special that aims to prove one thing – no matter what side of the ocean you’re on; we all laugh at the same shit. The comedy is a journey from Africa to India, India to America, stage to film, 20’s to 30’s and from single hood to marriage.
Speaking about it, Vir said, “It’s all ready to go and it’s time to send some authentic Indian comedy out to its largest ever audience. I’ve worked on this project for over a year now and I hope people enjoy it. I think we’re gonna have some fun on this wave!”
